"I Go Out Walkin' After Midnight" (an old Patsy Cline song). And, that's just about what we did very early this morning. With rain on the way and a Thanksgiving meal to get on the table, I was in a tizzy to get going early.
It was a quiet and peaceful walk until we approached a little grove of hackberries where a oh-so-precious family of raccoons were having an early breakfast, or perhaps, a late dinner. They stared down at us, and we stared up at them. I had the feeling that they and Millie might be old acquaintances for neither party seemed especially surprised to see the other. Millie was loathe to leave until I promised her a "cookie" when we got home.
So, Thanksgiving 2019 is in the history books. It was a lovely day even though it was wet and dreary outside. All of our children and grandchildren were here.
